This was a thoroughly enjoyable read. The characters are human and you find yourself gunning for them. No unexpected twists or turns but still a really good read. Well worth the credit.
I have read all David Baldaccis books and this is up there as a favourite.
As I am from a generation that didnt have to live through this era I have always had an interest in both sides of the story. Try as I might I couldnt get into this book. I kept coming back to it hoping I was in a better frame of mind to listen but eventually I gave up.
I think the narrator was wrong- she sounded like a litlle girl and which was off-putting as well as very irritating. It got to the point where i didnt care what happened anymore !! which is quite disturbing as it sounded like a story that needed to be told.
I will just have to rely on reviews and hopefully be able to work out what happened.
I gave up on it. I kept drifting off and missing details. Twice I went back thinking I had jumped chapters but No I just had blanked them out. Definately not for me
Glad I didnt pay alot for it.
James Patterson should be embarrassed to put his name to this book. I am an avid reader of his novels so consider myself a fair critic of his work. this would have to be the worst book I have ever had the misfortune to listen to. The family are too perfect and without giving anything away the storyline is so unbelievable I couldnt believe we were expected to stomach the things an experienced LAPD detective let his family do whilst in witness protection.
I bought the book to read- couldnt get into it so stupidly bought the audiobook- worse mistake. Luckily it was heavily reduced - I now know why. Save your money and ask someone else what happens. Having said that I probably will give the next book a go to see if he is still insulting our intelligence. Listen at your own peril.
I found the story hard to keep up with. Not sure if this was because it was abridged but it seemed to jump between present and past with no warning. Maybe I was'nt paying attention and was missing bits as my mind did tend to wander because it was quite a dull listen
Not sure. I think her style of writing isnt for me.
Her voice seemed to drone
Maybe try an unabridged version - its a risk as it may be even more boring to listen to and longer !!
I read the other reviews and thought this sounds a bit lame. I wouldn't call myself a dog lover but I was intrigued how this would play out. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Unlike Clayton who obviously went in with great expectations I had none.As long as you aren't after any
in-depth analysis of the two main characters psyche you should enjoy the book. I had never read any of Robert Crais previous books so had no idea how he wrote but it kept me entertained and the bond forming between the two was touching. I would definitely recommend this but don't expect anything too deep.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I haven't listened to a John Grisham for a while so had forgotten what a good storyteller he is. It had enough twists and turns to keep it really interesting . Definitely recommend.
It had a good storyline. Not a lot about the virus. I did get the book thinking it would have more about that but never the less I found the story good enough to keep listening. >I enjoyed it a lot. reccomend to anyone who is after a book with a storyline you can keep up with. Not too complicated but not too light. If that makes sense !
I found the story very hard to follow. I think it made the Amish out as very mistrusting which other books I have read havent portrayed them this way.I am still not sure I came to the same conclusion as the author.
I had trouble keeping up with who was who.It also moved a bit too slowly.
possibly down the track when I forget how slow it was but wont be spending a credit on it just yet.
Maybe it wasnt for me. I have listened to other Amish stories and found them really interesting but this was a bit stiff
an engrossing story
an enchanting story of enduring love.
well worth downloading. A beautifully written story and beatifully narrated.
